Is It Safe For Children To Drink Honey With Propolis Content?
hello good evening dock, I want to ask. my child is 4 years and 7 months, is it safe to give honey to him which contains honey in his propolis content, and is it safe if I give it every day? FYI, my child does not have any history. Please explain, doc, thank you.
Thank you for your question on HealthReplies.com.
In addition to honey, bees also produce a greenish-brown substance called propolis. Since ancient times, propolis is believed to be an herbal medicine that can cure various types of diseases. Same thing as honey, propolis also has many ingredients that are beneficial to the body, especially compounds for antioxidants.
There are several benefits of propolis for children, including: increasing the child's immune system, increasing appetite, having high antioxidants, providing vitamins and minerals, improving digestion of children and increasing children's growth cells.
There are some things that need to be considered if you are going to consume propolis, namely in children who have a history of allergies to honey, do not allow the consumption of honey propolis, and this can be consumed after the age of 2 years. And if after consuming there are symptoms of diarrhea, tightness, swelling in the body, then immediately consult your child to the doctor.
